Thank You Notes

Dear University Family, Losing a parent is a hard thing, but your sweet cards, flowers, texts, Facebook posts, and food have been a comfort to our whole family, and especially to me. Your prayers the past few years during Mother’s medical setbacks kept her alive and going until her earthly journey ended March 25th.  We thank all who came by their house in Happy, who served our family before visitation, those who brought flowers, attended the funeral, came for visitation, cried with us and gave hugs. A special thank you to Dudley McNeill for leading the singing during the funeral. Now, I request prayers for my father, Alvin Moudy, who is 89 and begins his final journey without his lifelong partner. Thank You!  In Him, Janet Crossland

When one has a loving and supportive church family, it is such a blessing. So many “thank you’s” go out to so many members of this congregation for flowers, calls, prayers, offers to help, before and during Mother’s passing. She is where we all are traveling towards. On behalf of the Robinson family, we say thank you and God bless. Ken Robinson

Dear Church Family, we cannot thank you enough for all the calls, texts, emails and most importantly prayers! Karsen’s recovery has gone amazingly well and we are so grateful and blessed. Love to all of you! Matt & Wendy Collier

Dear Church Family, thank all of you for the thoughts and prayer! I’m doing much better. Thank you and love you! Your friend, Karsen Collier
